it will be much more comfortable as drier air moves in. breezy, too. high temperatures in the upper 70s and low 80s. full seven-day forecast coming up. i'm happy to say on the inbound of i-66 other than the slow traffic inbound at the beltway, task lanes are open on 66 -- traffic lanes are open on 66. in my next report we'll take a look at 95 in virginia at 6:17. gmaco-anchor robin roberts has started pretreatment for mda, a disease of the bone and blood marrow. when she made the announcement monday, she said the illness was a direct result of the chemotherapy she received five years ago to fight her breast cancer. should other women getting chemo be worried about a similar diagnosis? joining me this morning is a doctor who is an oncologist at the virginia hospital center in
arlington, virginia. doctor, thank you very much for being here. i was going to ask you are the fears valid chu already -- which you already said you've received a number of inquiries about this. >> i have. i think this is one of the most feared complications of chemotherapy but i think it's really important to remember that this is a very, very uncommon complication of chemotherapy. chemotherapy leads to better outcomes in women. when we look at how women with breast cancer have survived over decades, we see they're doing better and better. part of that is because of the advances we've made in terms of therapeutic strategies. >> even though it's rare, are doctors telling women? because the e-mail i got, this is because women don't know about this and they should tell women. are women being counseled that this could be, rare though it is, a side effect of chemotherapy? >> i think that's an excellent question. in general when we as clinicians prescribe cream therapy, we go -- chemotherapy, we go through with women the
risk-benefit ratio so to speak and do tell them this is a rare complication of chemotherapy. while we probably focus more on the short-term side effects of hair loss and nausea and various other things that affect them in the day to day, we do counsel them that this is something that can happen years later. again, i want to stress it is a very rare complication. >> is this something, though, that women should shy away from chemotherapy? should we go to something else? >> you know, there's been a lot of press lately about the smart bombs and the tailored therapies. i think that one way we have advanced as a breast cancer community is we try and tailor each woman's therapy based on genomic predictors that we -- if, for example, if that comes back at low risk, then we say you don't need chemotherapy. >> we found that out with our colleague jc hayward. her score was 12 or 13. very low risk. she's only getting radiation
and tamoxifen. >> that's just the beginning. there are many more genomic class fires that are going to -- classifiers as they come out. the new treatments target cancer cells more than the traditional therapies. >> so we're not doing away with chemo but we do know we can move forward in other ways, individualized therapies and do not be afraid to ask these questions of your doctors before you start treatment and even while you're having treatment. thank you for being here with us. >> thank you for having me. the time right now is 6:14. on this wednesday morning. here's a check of stories making news. it will be another day of emotional testimony in the trial of jerry sandusky. two alleged victims of the former penn state assistant football coach testified yesterday. also on the stand tuesday, mike mcqueary. he says he spoke with the late joe paterno after saying he

we're about five plus inches in the hole since january 1. we've been maintaining that number for the last few weeks. here's a look at the bus stop forecast. only a few more days to go for just a few. a lot of schools already out for the summer. we've got partly cloudy skies out there. they're breaking up. temperatures in the 60s and low 70s. sunrise about half an hour ago. we're going to see it set just after 8:30 this evening. we'll see a good deal of sunshine today. partly to mostly sunny, breezy, less humid. 77 by noon. 81 at 4:00 so highs in the low #s on. the -- low 80s. the winds are going to gust 25, 25 miles an hour. maybe ier than that. you can see the yellow areas. these are the lower dew points, a more comfortable air mass. the sticky stuff down toward ocean city and norfolk with dew points in the 60s to around 70. we've got northwesterly winds so this air mass is going to replace that air mass and that just tells you it's going to feel a whole lot better. where it is drier it's also cooler in the mid-50s.
still 70 in richmond and ocean city. locally we've got 70 in easton. 63 in hagerstown. just starting to dry out a little bit. culpeper 66. as we look outside in washington, sunshine out there on our michael & son weather camera. still wet from yesterday's rains on the lense. that will dry up soon enough. 69 national. north wind at 9 miles an hour and the humidity at 84%. so the front went through. that's why we've got the winds out of the north. you can see the front well to the east of us. behind it nothing but high pressure coming our way. that's going to be the case with those clouds and the showers staying off shore today. might get a couple of clouds in here early tomorrow morning but even tomorrow still looks pretty good. today 82. it will be breezy. winds at times out of the north ten to 20 gusting 25 or more. tonight winds will lighten some. we're going to drop into the 50s and 60s. then thursday and friday partly to mothersly sunny and saturday partly to mostly sunny, low

brink road at goshen road up in montgomery county. coming up in my next report, we'll take another look at area roads at 6:25. it is 6:19. next in sports, hear from the forgotten side of the redskins and see the home run by bryce harper that hasn't landed yet. >> before we get to that, let's check the question of the morning. once again 52% of women say they will not allow their significant other to do which of these things around the house? is it a, laundry, b, cook, or c, decorate? >> facebook friend kim is emphatic in her guess that it's c. sorry, can't let him decorate. i wish he would do laundry. >> keep those guesses coming. we're going to reveal the correct answer at 6:48.

picked up. we understand we have to come out and work each and every day to get better. you know, just each day look to improve. >> kristen will be live again at redskins park starting tonight at 5:00. the time right now 6:25. ahead love this. learn where one channel 9 viewer found gas for under $3 a gallon believe it or not. >> i believe it. >> selling marijuana in the district legally. coming up why one future salesman says this will be safe. >> right now monika checks out any hassles on the road. >> we're fine here on the west side of town but wires down blocking brink road at goshen road and the red line has been single tracking between medical center and friendship heights. coming up in my next report, a closer look at maryland roads at 6:30. you're watching 9news now. well eab right back -- we'll be right back.

problem, especially when it's dale city all the way to woodbridge and solid from lorton to springfield. the right side of the screen right in springfield as you approach the beltway but again all lanes are open. you might see a little bit of yellow and orange forming on the beltway in the usual spots. now there's an accident as well on the northbound side of route 210 in oxon hill. it's as you exit for the beltway. i notice police are on the scene so hopefully they'll be able to clear that up for you shortly. we'll take a live look a little further south in brandywine. route 301 another route 5. just slow approaching the intersection but beyond that you're going to be okay. coming up in my next report at 6:45, another look at the big picture. andrea, jess? >> thank you, monika. the health board in new york city is backing the plan to ban the big cups and bottles of sugary drinks like soda. it has a story that has people talking around the world. >> our partners at cbs this morning are going straight to

resign. went before the judiciary committee yesterday to discuss intelligence leaks from the white house. republican john cornyn had some of the harshest criticism. >> you violated the public trust in my view and by failing and refusing to perform the duties of your office. you leave me no alternative but to join those that call upon you to resign your office. >> with all due respect, senator, there's so much that's factually wrong with the premises that you started your statement with. it's almost breathtaking. i don't have any intention of resigning. >> a house committee will vote next week whether to hold the attorney general in contempt for refusing to hand over documents in the fast and furious gun case. it's been one week since kwame brown resigned in disgrace as d.c. council chairman. >> today the council will elect an interim chairman, someone to lead the council still election
day in november. >> delia goncalves is live outside the wilson building with a preview of this morning's decisions and what's next for the council. good morning, delia. >> reporter: good morning, andrea. the interim chair will only hold the post for about 114 days but still it's an important decision because that person will dictate the future direction of this council. and many council members say it is time to move beyond the shame and betrayal that many felt when kwame brown pled guilty to bank fraud, the second council member now to resign in grace. the first harry thomas, jr. pled guilty of stealing more than $350,000 meant for young children. now they say the number one job of the interim? to bring trust and integrity back to the job. >> i can pull everybody together and make sure that we work hard to get our respect and integrity back for this
council. >> what i think is important is that we have a leader who will work with all the members, who will pull us all together, and will look toward rebuilding this institution's -- rebuilding this institution and by that i mean the people's trust in this. >> both men have expressed interest in running for the permanent chair in november. and certainly whoever wins the interim seat today will certainly have a good running in november for that permanent spot. we will have more information and the vote will likely come down soon after their hearing at 10:00 this morning. back to you. >> delia goncalves live outside the wilson building in northwest this morning. d.c.'s health department has approved applications allowing four medical marijuana dispensaries to set up shop in the district. three would open in northwest. a fourth shop is planned to open on capitol hill just a few blocks from the capital
building. once the shops are open, patients will need several documents to purchase the marijuana. >> it is going to be a very controlled and very well organized distribution that -- [indiscernible] >> the owner of the tacoma wellness center writes on her website she's doing this in part because both her parents died from excruciating illnesses and that their pain might have been eased by medical marijuana. the montgomery county council heard from residents over how pepco's tree trimming policy is stated. itself utility says it's needed to prevent power outages. under a new bill before the council, certain utilities would need consent from property owners before crews can begin trimming or removing trees. montgomery county resident madeline wilkes supports the bill. >> we lost a huge tree in our
front yard when we were under the united stating it was -- under the understanding it was going to be trimmed. >> pepco began aggressively trimming trees following a string of power outages caused by limbs falling on power lines during storms. county officials will hold another meeting on the bill next thursday. if you're looking for cheaper gas prices for your summer trip, head south and west. the statewide averages are lower in virginia, georgia, tennessee and missouri. in the d.c. metro area, regular grade gas now averages $3.47 a gallon. that's down 28 cents in the last month. nationwide the average sits at $3.54 a gallon. check this out. this is a thing of beauty. facebook friend luke sent this in from harrisonburg, virginia. gas for $2.93 a gallon there. luke wrote, thought he'd never see this again. >> boy, i wish i were in the area to fill up. our time is 6:37. don't forget father's day is
